Different behavior m4v files linked in html vs in menu list

I have menus screens with links to m4v files. And when I click on them the movie opens appropriately. However, in some of my screens I have html files some of which have links in them to the same m4v files. However, when I click these links, the movie opens and plays correctly, but smack in the center of the frame is the Play icon (the forward arrow in a circle). If I click on the arrow the arrow disappears and the movie continues to play with also the usual movie control bars. If I don't press it the movie will play but without the controls such as fast forward, pause, etc. Does anyone know why there are these two behaviors and if there is any way I can get the inked movies to behave normally. Thanks. Steve

In the html doc, try adding autoplay=false in with the source.

Could you please tell me exactly where it would go. The code for the link is <a href=rrbruchner.m4v> Where should autoplay=false go and what is the syntax. Thanks.

I tried <a href=rrbruchner.m4v autoplay = false > but the video started to play immediately as always, with the right arrow in the circle in the center of the frame.
